Were is the Water Pump? 1969 Ambassador

I have looked all over my 29' Ambass but I cannot find the water pump. Does anyone know where it was originally?

Locate the fresh water holding tank. Then follow the line, they are usually close to the tank, separated by a small inline filter screen.
I take it that the pump doesn't run. Otherwise you could turn it on and search for the source of the noise.

The fill line was in the front, now MIA, there is a copper pipe that runs from the back under the road side cabinets, towards the section were the groucho was, but is capped off. I don't know if that was a water line or gas. My guess is that the pump was removed, but I just wanted to see were the factory put it.

My '67 Globetrotter and a few Overlanders of similar vintage I'm familiar with had the pump next to the fresh water tank under the front couch. The water pipes do run inside down the street side to the rear "service center" and city water hookup.

My 69 tradwind has the waterpump on the streetside under the gaucho. the water tank is under the gaucho as well. There should be a couple of holes on the streetside where the waterpump goes for draining the tank and the waterlines to winterize.
